Robert Hanna’s The Fate of Analysis: Analytic Philosophy From Frege To The Ash-Heap of History, And Toward a Radical Kantian Philosophy of the Future is a comprehensive revisionist study of the history of Analytic philosophy from the early 1880s to the present, with special attention paid to Ludwig Wittgenstein’s work and the parallels and overlaps between the analytical and phenomenological traditions. It provides a synoptic introduction to European and Anglo-American philosophy from the 1880s to the present, including accessible, clear, and critical descriptions of works by Gottlob Frege, G.E. Moore, Bertrand Russell, Wittgenstein — featuring close readings of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations — Franz Brentano, Edmund Husserl, Alexius Meinong, The Vienna Circle (especially including Rudolf Carnap and Kurt Gödel), W.V.O. Quine, Saul Kripke, The Pittsburgh School of Philosophy (Wilfrid Sellars, John McDowell, and Robert Brandom), and others. While The Fate of Analysis is critical and provocative in its treatment of the Analytic tradition, it is also fully oriented toward a radical Kantian philosophy of the future, and completes a 20-year trilogy that began with Kant and the Foundations of Analytic Philosophy (Oxford Univ. Press, 2001) and Kant, Science, and Human Nature (Oxford Univ. Press, 2006).
